Patagonia Camp is situated just outside of Torres del Paine National Park in Chile, which encompasses a vast array of lakes, rivers, glaciers and mountains. Patagonia Camp’s philosophy is to protect the beautiful environment of this national park, and to minimally impact the varied and beautiful eco-systems present here. Each structure that makes up Patagonia Camp, including the luxurious yurts, communal area, and walkways are built up on stilts to avoid damaging the plant life that has grown below for hundreds of years. The camp also features a low-emission electric generator and a sophisticated waste water treatment system that returns water to the crystalline rivers and lakes completely pure.
Patagonia Camp has another philosophy – to provide their guests with total immersion in nature without foregoing luxury and comfort. This philosophy is exemplified in each of the eighteen yurts, which have their own private bathrooms and luxuriously-appointed beds. The yurts are decorated with woven fabrics and locally-handcrafted furniture. Each yurt also boasts a private terrace, which is perfect for lounging and enjoying one of Patagonia Camp’s famed pisco sours after a day of hiking and sight-seeing. (Pisco is a type of grape brandy typically produced in the winemaking regions of Peru and Chile.)
Patagonia Camp is ideally situated to provide their guests with easy access to one of nature’s most beautiful playgrounds, Torres del Paine National Park. The design of Patagonia Camp pays special attention to this fact, making sure to display its greatest asset at every opportunity. Guests can enjoy lying back in their plush beds to a breathtaking view of the sparkling waters of Lake Toro and the impressive peaks of the Paine Massif. In the dining room, the tables are situated right next to the large picture windows so that guests can gaze out at the magnificent landscape.
Guests of Patagonia Camp can experience guided group treks to explore the breathtaking national park. Guests can also fish in the nearby streams in hopes of catching one of the native salmon or trout, or to explore the local trails on mountain bikes. Kayaks and canoes are available as well for paddling on Lake Toro.
Meals at Patagonia camp reflect the traditional cuisine of Chile. The dishes are often imaginative and feature fresh, locally-sourced ingredients, thoughtfully prepared to be delicious and healthful. A different dinner menu is available nightly, and often features slow-roasted lamb, or southern hake. Hearty box lunches are provided so that guests can be enjoy them while out on excursions.
Patagonia Camp is located at what many call “the end of the world,” referring to Patagonia’s geographical location at the southern tip of South America. Guests should be prepared for an excursion of a lifetime. They’ll experience the best that glamping has to offer – an immersive experience in an amazing, natural environment complete with a warm shower and a comfortable bed to retire to at the end of the day.
